Franchise agreements are legal documents and should always be treated with caution. Signing, modifying or closing has important consequences. By agreeing to terminate the franchise agreement, the franchisee loses the franchisee`s income and could damage its reputation. The Code does not explicitly impose on franchisors the right to terminate the franchise agreement, but it does impose certain practical obligations where franchisors require a contractual right of termination.
